Jenny January 2016

The start of 2016 meant it was time for our second annual #JennyJanuary, a style challenge event I began last year in which I asked my fellow Pinup Girl Clothing fans to wear any Jenny skirts or dresses they owned during the week of January 18th-24th and to share their outfits on social media using the hashtag #JennyJanuary. The aim is for lovers of these pieces to interact with each other online in order to share stories about their Jennies, the life events they have lived in them, and to provide each other with style inspiration for new ways to style and wear their Jennies.

Last year the event was a huge success, with other 300 entries and ladies all over the world taking part. (You can read up on it here.) This year, it was lovely to see women waiting excitedly for #JennyJanuary to start, sharing the preparations they were making in planning out their outfits for this year’s event.

It was another wonderful success, with over 800 entries! It would be impossible to share all the entries here on my blog, so if you want to peruse them all then I suggest you search the #JennyJanuary hashtag over on Instagram. Below I’ve made a gallery of just a small selection of the lovely ladies who took part, leaving their Instagram names on their pictures so you can be sure to follow anyone who’s style catches your eye.

If you want to see the outfit pictures of my own Jenny January entries then you can scroll past the gallery to find my pictures below it, as well as links to anything you can purchase for yourself, if you so wish.

  2. First off, thank you for including me in your post! And thank you for doing Jenny January! I did one day last year, missed July, but did every day this year. I enjoyed it for all of the reasons you listed. I usually am not into style challenges, but for whatever reason this one is different! It was nice to style my fave Jennys in different ways and use a few prints as an excuse to open up on my blog about what some prints meant to me. I can’t wait for July!!! XOXOXO
